This little drawing project and the free printable worksheet below will help give the young artist confidence in drawing a basic face at an angle. Parents, teachers and homeschool families will be able to use this in class and at home. It could be an extra activity to fill in time or as a reward.

FIRST. A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Do not give up if your drawing does not turn out the way you wanted- it shows that you have the gift of art because no one is as hard on themselves as a person who really has the gift of art, frustration just means you need to bring up your level of skill level to the level of your talent, so to draw everyday.

The basic shape of the head in the 3/4 view is like an egg or teardrop upside down and tilted to one side.
Lightly draw guidelines down the vertical axis of the face, this will be almost on the outside edge at the chin and about20% back from the outside edge at the top.
Lightly draw a guideline for the eyes about half way from the chin to the crown of the head, this guideline will extend back for the top of the ear.
Halfway down from the eyes draw a guideline for the nose, this guideline will extend back for the bottom of the ear.
Halfway down from the nose draw a guideline for the mouth.

The eye socket and cheek are like a cut into the outside edge draw it like a pointing to the guideline for the eye.  Draw the eyes right on the guideline. Take your time to make sure they are even so that one is not higher than the other. The eye on the outside is touching the > of the eye socket.

The nose is almost like an upside down number seven that starts at the point where the guidelines for the eyes cross and goes down to the outside line and back across the guideline and up.

The outside edge of the lips touch the outside edge of the face. The top is straight line shaped like an uneven M and the bottom is a curved line like a U.

The ear is almost all the way to the back of the head. The top of the ear is no higher than the guideline for the eye and the bottom of the ear is no lower than the guideline for the nose. The ear is like a peanut that is wider at the top and smaller at the bottom with a large letter S inside.

Add in the chin with a line going down from the lips and back to the jaw line. The jaw takes a sharp turn up to connect to the bottom of the ear.

Keep the hair simple. The hairline starts half way from halfway between the eyes and the top of the head, it curves across and down to the ear. Draw the outside edges of the hair around the head.  Do wavy lines or spiky lines to give it character.

The neck at the front starts a little back of the chin it goes down and our forward. The neck at the back starts halfway behind the ear.

Use shading to give the face character and roundness.
